Energy Banner 2024 - Smart Data for Energy


September 18 - 19 2024 | 151 St George, National Harbor, Maryland



This senior level educational and networking Summit is designed as a highly interactive forum that provides an interchange of in depth knowledge and serves as a catalyst for collaboration across large built environments that share the common goals of:

Utilizing smart, data - driven capabilities to help support energy optimization goals throughout the design, build, retrofit and maintenance phases. These sectors include:

Higher Education Campuses, Hospitals & Healthcare Systems, Corporate Campuses / Large Buildings & Federal Facilities 

The highly curated two-day agenda offers senior level panels, plenary sessions (no tracks!), 5 hours of dedicated networking and live technology and solution demonstrations onsite.

"This is my second year in attendance. Not only have the speakers and subjects been incredible but these are the most forward thinkers in the goals of  ESG,  Sustainability and Resiliency I have met to date.  Our firm met some state-of-the-art technology suppliers and are moving forward with them to better our campus building management. This type of discussion is the way we will be successful as leaders in our industries to attain ESG and sustainability / Resiliency goals". -  Senior Director Design and Construction, Howard Hughes Corporation.

"The most professional, interesting, educational event that I have attended!"-  Principal, Energy, Engineering & Infrastructure, Corporate Facilities Services, Northwell Health

"This was truly one of the best conferences I've attended! A fantastic event! I met many new smart building professionals in the Healthcare, Higher Education, and Federal space. This was a collaborative event where we took the opportunity to learn from each other to drive our industry forward."

Exceptional professionalism. I very much enjoyed the level of engagement by your attendees...Thank you for the opportunity to conduct what we call “Knowledge Transfer” - Director, UCSD

A superb program. I have been attending utility/energy sessions, of widely varying sizes, for over 35 years. Your work ranks with the best I have experienced - District of Columbia, Department of Energy and Environment

"Best group of speakers and industry representation in years of attending similar events"
Senior Manager, Engineering, NORESCO

"I very much enjoyed the event. Compliments to you on organizing… very well done indeed" - Manager, Duke Energy

Strategy and Planning of Facility, Campus and Building Owners / Operators:

  • Establishing the end goals for facilities and campuses' energy ecosystems. What are the desired outcomes that owners /operators are trying to achieve ?

  • What insight and capabilities do owners / operators want to gain from data-drive solutions towards their current energy footprint that can help best inform planning, operations, and maintenance to support their above goals?

  • How do decision makers want solutions presented to them from both their internal teams and outside industry partners?

  • What digital tools and insight do the Design, Construction and Engineering teams want to best support them in the early decision making process: from upgrading legacy systems to developing new ‘smart’, experiential driven, net-zero buildings and facilities

Building the Foundation for a Smart Facilities and Campus Ecosystem:

  • Aggregating your facility data: bringing together disparate dynamic and static data from across assets to best inform energy operations : Best practices for project design, building out the network / digital foundation and implementation strategies that are providing the greatest cost effectiveness and ROI for older buildings

  • How to measure system level energy use and carbon emissions to better inform ESG strategy and operational goals

  • Cyber security risk framework across OT and IT: understanding vulnerable attack surfaces and what you need to have in place in order to improve resiliency and security of connected data systems, and what customers need to require from their vendors. Best practices for detection and response to an IT or OT attack in real time

Making Systems Smarter:

  • Doing more with your BMS: Layering Fault Detection + Diagnostics / Continuous-Monitoring based Commissioning : how do you integrate them into your current IT/OT systems and what are the insights that these capabilities should bring to the end users?

  • Dashboards / Visualization: what do users really need to “see” (and not) and how does it need to be presented at the application layer in order to make informed decisions and ensure their continual use of the system? What are the current trends customers are utilizing

  • What do you need for real-time processing for incident detection and/or prevention and post incident response analysis and how to integrate this into existing maintenance workflows

  • Converging data science and building science to support greater energy optimization and how is it currently being applied

  • Forecasting tools for future campus energy requirements: does current supply meet projected demand

Moving to Intelligent Systems:

  • An honest broker discussion on the current state of “AI” applications in energy management: What are current “AI” applications really able to do and what are the current use cases today for energy operations in large facilities and campuses? What owners and operators can reasonably expect from industry in the near future ?

  • The art of near term possible: case studies on current intelligent buildings from owners and their industry partners

  • How owners/operators and their industry partners can future-ready their systems for integrating evolving intelligent building systems


Gain Education & Insight

For facility, campus and building energy stakeholders, you will walk away with knowledge gained from our senior-level speakers and attendees to help you improve the energy optimization of your built environment. For industry innovators, you will walk away with a deep understanding of the current challenges, needs, and initiatives across a variety of stakeholders from federal, state, and private sectors, and learn about where you solution or service may be best applied.

Build Partnerships

The Summit is designed to bring together a variety of stakeholders from across multiple sectors in order to expand professional networks and forge partnerships  with persons you may not have necessarily had to the opportunity to engage with yet. You will also have the ability discover the latest technologies and trends driving driving solutions for energy optimization in the large built environment across the Nation during our ample networking time throughout both days.


Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. Designed as an interactive ‘Town Hall’ forum, all  attendees are encouraged to engage in dialogue and discussion with each other and the speakers during each session.
